Preston School District
Seven long time Preston School District employees have announced their retirement at the end of this school year.
• Wynn Costley has been employed with our district for 28 years. He also taught four years in Utah prior to coming to Idaho. He has been an administrator the whole time he has been with us. He recently served as principal at Pioneer Elementary and Franklin County High School, and as our Special Ed Director. He has also been the transportation supervisor and the Federal Programs Director. When asked to comment on Wynn Costley’s retirement, superintendent Wilson remarked that he was reminded of a poem that says, “…People come into our lives for a reason, bringing something we must learn. We are led to those who help us most grow. Because we knew him, we have been changed for good.”
“For 28 years Wynn Costley has been a fixture in the Preston School District. The students and parents he has championed during that time have been changed for good because of Mr. Costley’s influence and leadership. The 100 Point Walks, graduation ceremonies at Franklin County High School, a hearty laugh, and a good heart that put students first are just a few of the memories we will have of Wynn Costley.”
“We are grateful for all the good that Mr. Costley has done for the district. We wish him the best as he and Cecelie move on to their next adventure, teaching English in China. I am sure it won’t be long before his Chinese students are following an umbrella toting, “Cat in the Hat” hat wearing gentleman, down a hallway filled with smiles and cheers.
